Meringue Pie Shell

Someone wanted recipes for pie shells.  Found this in an old Betty Crocker

Heat oven to 275 degrees.  Generously butter 9-inch pie pan.  (A substitute
would probably work fine.)  In small mixer bowl, beat 2 egg whites (1/4 to
1/3 cup) and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar until frothy.  Beat in 1/2 cup
sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff and glossy.  Do
not underbeat.  Pile into prepared pan, pressing meringue up against side
of pan.  Bake 45 minutes.  Turn off oven; leave meringue in oven with door
closed 45 minutes.  Remove from oven; finish cooling away from draft.
